Review of Falcon Zero Touch HD DashCam
Falcon Zero Touch is a touch screen dash cam that offers round-the-clock surveillance for your vehicle. It comes with a 24 On hardware kit that will keep the camera on even after you turn off the vehicle. Incident recording is automatic. The G Sensor sends the device into the record mode whenever it senses any unusual movement in the vehicle. Likewise, it also stops the recording automatically.
The Inteli-Batt anti battery drain technology protects the battery from dying out too quick. The 4-inch touch screen is scratch resistant and extremely easy to navigate and nearly double in size of traditional dashcam screens. You can play back the photos and video clips without having to connect to an external device; it offers clear, vivid display.

The device is built using high tech components like 3.0 MP CMOS sensor and superior spherical glass lens. The WDR or Wide Dynamic Range technology helps the camera focus for better clarity during night time and in low light environment. The inbuilt GPS facilitates geo tagging of files, which when viewed in the DashCam Viewer software, displays additional data like map, speed, weather, etc. It also has a microphone for recording audio. You can also choose to stamp your clips with date and time.
Falcon Zero touch car cam supports microSD memory card of up to 64 GB, and a card of 32 GB is supplied along with the product. The camera uses the loop recording feature to rewrite over the old files when there is no more space left in the memory card. Thus it facilitates continuous recording on its own; you don’t have to format the SD card or take any other action. Given that the loop recording is of 2 or 5 minutes in length, a 32 GB SD card can store up to 5.5 hours of HD clips before the relooping begins.
If you’d like to save the videos to your PC, all you need to do is plug in the cam or the memory card to your system and save the files there. You can also use this device as a webcam to livestream on your computer. If you want to use the same device for two or more vehicles (one at a time), you can just go for additional docking station instead of buying another set of dash cam.
The design looks slim, sleek and cool, and adds to the interior of your vehicle. The back touch screen portion has somewhat of an iPhone look and feel to it, making the interface more intuitive than other push button dash cams that can often be confusing when first using. It takes HD videos of 1920x1080 pixels @30 fps. The videos are extremely clear and you will never miss any vehicle’s license plate number, signs or any other detail. The superior, ultra wide angle lens of 170 degrees minimizes the fish bowl effect, giving you full coverage in front of your car windshield.
Falcon Zero Touch camera can be installed on your vehicle’s dashboard using the patented mount bracket it comes with. The bracket also has power pins for providing power to the camera. It holds the dash cam just like a docking station; you can easily mount and remove the camera from the windshield without having to unplug anything, as the camera docking station stays mounted on your windshield. The package also contains a USB car charger along with other items listed below.
